After many hours of searching on Paypal and nBill's forums, I still cannot find a solution.
When attempting to submit order to Paypal Sandbox, I receive the following error:

The link you have used to enter the PayPal system is invalid. Please review the link and try again.

I currently have my the following settings for nBill:

Payment Gateway (paypal)
IPN = index.php?option=com_netinvoice&action=gateway&task=ipn&gateway=paypal
Verify Callback = 1

Order Form

Gateway - paypal
payment frequency code - ##5## (refers to field ID # - frequency)

When completing the order form, I am using the sandbox buyer email address.  After submitting, it is directed to Paypal sandbox to enter buyer email and password.  I enter the corresponding buyer email address and password, and receive the above error.

Any direction/advice on how to correct this.

Make sure your product names do not have any special characters in them (eg. brackets). The paypal sandbox is very unreliable at the moment - recently I have had to resort to testing on the live system!
